In 1860 John Robert Hinton earned his Medical Degree from the University of Pennsylvania. His thesis was "Intermittent Fever." After graduation, he set up practice in Petersburg, Virginia. When war came to his native state, he was appointed as an Assistant Surgeon in the Provisional Army of the Confederate States. In October of 1862, he was at Hospital Number 22, Howard's Factory, in Richmond, when he was ordered to report to Winchester, Virginia. He performed duty at Guinea Station and Danville also, until March of 1865, when he was ordered to report to General Hampton in the field. A month later, he received his parole in Burkeville. He went to Richmond, signed his oath, then home to High Street, in Petersburg. In the 1870s, he practiced in Nottoway County. In the 80s, he was back in Petersburg. He belonged to the A.P. Hill Camp of United Confederate Veterans.
